When I first heard Florence and the Machine on Steve Lamacq's show I didn't get it. Here was an artist who was being hyped as a live sensation and one of the tips for 2009 and it didn't impress me. I didn't see anything special in the music, the voice or the delivery. It just didn't add up for me. But then recently I heard most recent single `Rabbit Heart (Raise it Up)' whilst driving on a sunny day with the windows down and the radio up. Then it clicked. And so here I am on a Sunday afternoon sitting on the floor of my living room with a beer in hand having just watched the Wimbledon Men's final, and Florence is singing down my ear "I'll cut your little heart out, `cause you made me cry."

Florence and the Machine for me is the glorious sound of someone who has sat down with a piano and a drum kit having just listened to too much Tori Amos and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Florence has a strangely ethereal voice helped along by the slight echo in quieter moments of the songs and the layered choral like backing vocals. The sound is deceptive. It is simultaneously demanding and seductive. The drums are relatively simple designed for no other reason than to drive the songs. The piano adds melody in support of Florence's voice and if you listen carefully there are subtle layers an nuances in it that will slowly be uncovered as you listen more.
To follow all this Florence and the Machine could not hope for a better debut. It is simply a joy to listen to. The tracks fly by but you remember every beat of them. `Dog Days are Over' is a brilliant start and following this with the most recent single adds a nice bit familiarity. Tracks like `Howl' and `Kiss with a Fist' are then great additions before the rhythmic genius of `Drumming Song'.

I love this album. Florence Welch is so different to any other artist I know, with the use of the harp being prominent and refreshing on several of the album's songs. I can listen without skipping a track, and the mix of songs is quite eclectic, with indie-rock 'Kiss with a Fist', dark, nonchalant 'My boy builds coffins' and the hugely powerful and tribal sound of 'Cosmic Love'. Perhaps my favourite non-single (so far anyway) is Hurricane Drunk although i'm really coming round to Cosmic Love.
Main review stops here - for longer version, read on...

I'll quickly review each track.
Dog Days are Over - Quiet ukelele gives way to full-blown havoc
Rabbit Heart - A bittersweet reflection on the achievment of fame, 'sacrifice' of life for the shiny 'looking glass' - 'who is the lamb and who is the knife?'
I'm Not Calling You A Liar - Not the best on the album, but with a beautiful switch of key for the chorus.
Howl - A real belter, one I loved as soon as I heard it.
Kiss With A Fist - Based on this song and Dog days, Florence was awarded the Critics Choice award of 2009 at the BRITs. Quality, not quantity is the key in this song.
Girl With One Eye - Dark lyrics 'i'll cut your little heart out, cause you made me cry' - kind of evokes music from Westerns.
Drumming Song - This should have done better as a single. Louder and louder...
Between Two Lungs - breathy (naturally) and light, I haven't really got this song yet. but enjoyable.
Cosmic Love - A real punch in the face - Florence's voice is at its most powerful and astonishing here.
My Boy Builds Coffins - not one of my top 5 songs but an interesting and disturbing listen.
Hurricane Drunk - great, accessible. About her being rejected. 'I belong to the hurricane'.

This is a review for the vinyl edition of Florence and the Machine Lungs album. It's now a couple of months since I've had this album and I still don't tire listening to it. The Gatefold Vinyl presentation is first class - photography on both inner and outer cover tremendous plus photography on both sides of the sleeve insert makes this a fine addition to my vinyl collection. Nice touch on side 1 and side 2 of the record being labelled "in" and "out" - you won't get that on any other format like CD and definitely not on a digital download! Sound quality of the tracks is first rate played on a quality turntable and noticed that same track listings as in CD release so nothing added or lost.

Florench Welch's fine vocals and energy like a fusion of Kate Bush and Siouxsie Sioux - can't wait to see her perform live in Dec 2009 Glasgow.

Great to see new artists releasing their material on Vinyl. Just ordered Bat for Lashes "Two Suns" also on Vinyl and hoping that it will be of the same standard as Florence and The Machine's album. Keep it up for us vinyl collectors who still like to physically hold and cherish their music collection. Vinyl still rules for presentation of Album artwork, lyrics you can read on bigger fonts and of course the sound quality on a properly produced album such as this.

Me and female singers have never really gotten along. I much prefer to listen to the sounds of Thom Yorke or Brandon Flowers or (dare I say) Bono. Whilst my mates fawn over Bjork or Tori Amos or Britney they kind of leave me cold. Then along comes Florence and the Machine. In a year which has been pretty shoddy for decent albums this rises head and shoulders above any other long player. it's so good I could almost imagine Kate Bush discovering this album and sending her minions out to bring this 'florence girl' straight to her. I was fortunate to see her live last month and she's truly a star. When you hear music like this and know that we're still able to discover stars in the world of digital disposal music it makes you sick to your stomach that Simon Cowell is driving the heart and soul out of music. The odd thing is, Florence probably wouldn't have made it past week one of X Factor.
